Hotel rooms for Regionals

Hey Guys, there are a whole bunch of us heading up to Regionals to represent CFNYC this year! We’ll have a CFNYC tent on sight for a home base, and we have 4 rooms left in our hotel block at the Fairfield Inn (May 30th, 31st, and June 1st). If you would like to stay in the same hotel with CFNYC and the team book your room here. The block is only reserved until midnight tomorrow, after that, the rooms get released to the public. It’s going to be a great weekend, all are welcome/encouraged to join!! Email stacey@crossfitnyc.com with questions.

Please note, everyone is responsible for their own transportation and Regionals tickets. Last year we were given free tickets, but this year, unfortunately, we are not getting any. If you intend to go to Regionals, you need to buy your own pass.
